PDA

View Full Version : Chunkies: Monochromatic Chunky Pages; PAT due August 24th

ALL FULL, THANKS FOR LOOKING
Chunky Pages PAT - Due IN MY HANDS!!! August 24th
(This gives me a week to mail out returns and still be within the 90 day limit.)
Sign-up date: Until full
Since this is a PAT, there is no withdrawal date. Most artists start working on their pages immediately.

Participants: We can have 5 groups of six people each.
You can sign up for one or two groups.

Minimum iTrader: 15+

Chunky books (or their hanging equivalent) are collaborative works in which each artist contributes a page to each other artist's book. Usually these books are called "chunky books" because of the amount of stuff hanging from them--fibers, beads, wire, etc. You may also have heard these called "fat books". (stolen verbatim from malinmaskros' PAT thread, thanks :wub: )

Here's how this works; Join a group, INSTEAD OF CHOOSING A THEME CHOOSE A COLOR. Everyone in the group will make you a page using shades of your chosen color plus black/white.
(These can be abstract or representational as long as the page is mostly the chosen color.)
I've added some examples below by dolores4fun, terrorgirl, pippin, katilady and meganspaperstudio.

Format: We will be creating 4x4" pieces of art. Please make sure they have a sturdy backing. Since many people make their pages into books whose backs are seen, make the back at least somewhat visually pleasing! It's also a good idea to avoid putting a lot of "chunk" along the left side to allow for binding.

Media: Open media on these books. Feel free to have fun and experiment!

Shipping costs: US please send 3$/ international if you have 5$ US dollars or stamps that's great, if not any local ephemera is always appreciated :D

Mailing: 5 pages should fit into a large bubble envelope. PLEASE include an address label

PLEASE!!! Make sure your USER NAME is on all pages and envelope, Indicate who the page is for on each page.

Players - when you receive your pages for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for each person in your group and your esteemed hostess.

06-24-2009, 12:03 PM
Well I'm back and I have decided to start the 2 hardest (for me anyway) color pages. Those would be the orange ones for OY and doodlebug. I NEVER work with orange! I've gone through everyone in my groups' profiles to see what themes they like, and I'm trying to find one that fits each of their chosen colors.

curbsidetreasure
06-25-2009, 02:13 AM
for me red is harder to work with. i'm not sure why...orange is easier, same with yellow but red is hard. i've also never worked with pink, but i did make a pink page and i like it :)

katilady
06-25-2009, 09:58 AM
i think purple was hardest for me cause i had just made a slew of purple chunkies for a swap elsewhere. but i am glad it came out ok. now i just have to get on with the rest of them!

what helps me is i have a crap load of paper scraps and they are sorted by color. so it's easy to go through them and find the colors i need. it's sometimes harder finding an appropriate picture.

OK Houston, we have a problem. It seems the postal workers in Britain are doing their annual "on again off again" postal strike thingie, and Terrorgirl's pages are caught up in the maelstrom :eek:
The due date is in 5 days, I can wait a bit longer than that to see if they arrive. If not, I can mail them separately when (if?) they get here. Is that OK with everyone?

katilady
08-19-2009, 09:47 AM
oh what a bummer for terrorgirl!

dina54
08-19-2009, 04:36 PM
Must be the crazy, lazy Summer thing affecting us all! Don't worry Dolores, I'm thinking I'll wait an extra week to see if Terrorgirl's pages arrive.
T*time, your pretties arrived today. (I think I will be giving you some "change" back BTW.);)

that's fine with me - easier than posting twice

OriginalYouth
08-19-2009, 11:32 PM
My 10 are all offffffficially complete and will be sent out tomorrow. I'm not going to post the scans, but I will post a photo of them sometime soon.

For most of them, I'm including the ribbons/fibers/chunky bits in the baggie, but not punching holes for them, as I know some of you dont' like the 'dangly bits'. If you FOR SURE want me to punch holes and tie it on, let me know here and I will add them to yours in the morning. This is for group 1 and group 4, just remind me of your color. :)

Here are 9 of my pages! I'm not showing the 10th one, as it a: wouldn't fit symmetrically, and b: is for Dolores and she's MIA.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2501/3839987162_8d1036fefd.jpg

I'm putting them with a few pieces of coordinating ribbons or fibers and chunky bits in the baggie, attached only to the page with a paperclip for those of you who like your pages flat and simple.

she's mia from my dark goddess swap too. that's not such a big deal as it isn't a pat. have you checked with her mom, djl1050?

kristinized
08-20-2009, 10:55 AM
very cool OY!

mine went out today as well! all but Dolores' are in my gallery if you want a peek. I've learned I don't do too well without a theme, so I picked something from your profiles that I thought you guys might like.

OriginalYouth
08-20-2009, 01:04 PM
Thanks gang, I'm glad a few of you like what I made. The only one of mine who got a themed page was Kati, cause I know she likes chubby girls and nudes, so I figured I'd roll with a TTD like that. The rest are just all OY style funky girls and Tip Tops on mixed media backgrounds.

OriginalYouth
08-20-2009, 01:48 PM
Oh, I should clarify something. I DID make a page for Dolores, and will send it, I'm just not expecting her to follow through, so I'll probably get it back.

dina54

I am having no luck contacting Dolores and her mom hasn't answered either (not that she is obligated to). I wish I could say I will make 10 extra pages but there is no way I can get them done any time soon! I will of course, send any pages made for her back to everyone (assuming she doesn't get in touch before the 24th). I HATE WHEN THIS HAPPENS!!! :arghh:This is the only bad thing about PATs.

katilady

we leave neg itraders for her if that happens, correct?

dina54

Jonquil's pages are here. I will wait until tomorrow's mail arrives; If Terrorgirl's pages don't show up, I'll mail what I have and send her pages out to everyone separately when they get here. Most of you were very generous with stamps and dollars for postage so it won't be a problem. Damn the British Postal System!

jonquil

I am so relieved that they made it in time - as I said I hate cutting it so fine and waiting anxiously and hoping they make it - now I am happy:D

dina54
08-29-2009, 11:23 AM
Note: Due to MONSOON-like rain (left-overs from Hurricane Danny) and my lack of an adequate transport vehicle (Hubby took a wheel off the truck to replace a brake-pad-thingie and had to abort mission -see MONSOON above), I will not be able to get to post-office today. On the bright side, that gives T'Girls pages one more chance to arrive, right?
These are all sorted, labeled and just need to be weighed for postage by the always happy to see me ("quick hide, here she comes again!":swoon:) Postal Workers!!!!!

These have all been mailed out. I kept the pages made for TerrorGirl. If her pages show up soon, I will mail them separately to each person in her group and send her returns to her. (got that?) If they DON'T show up soon, I will contact each person that made her a page as to what they want me to do, OK?
